Ford F-150 Diesel Offers Best-in-Class Torque

Pickup truck fans have reason to celebrate this year as Ford delivers on its promise to offer a diesel version of the popular F-150.

“For every truck owner who wants strong fuel economy while they tow and haul, we offer a new 3.0 l Power Stroke® V6 engine that dreams are made of,” said Dave Filipe, vice president global powertrain engineering. “The more you tow and the longer you haul, the more you’ll appreciate its class-leading towing and payload capacity and how efficient it is at the pump.”

This all-new 3.0 l diesel now makes for 6 engine choices for F-150 customers.

Peak torque comes at just 1,750 rpm with strong torque delivery continuing throughout the range, which is ideal for towing or hauling heavy loads over long distances. The new V6 diesel features the same compacted-graphite iron block material construction and forged-steel crank used in the 2.7 l EcoBoost® engine for added strength and durability along with reduced weight.

For greater responsiveness and reduced turbo lag, the Ford truck team chose a high-efficiency variable-geometry turbocharger. A high-pressure common-rail fuel injection system enables smoother, quieter operation with reduced emissions.

Calibrated specifically for the all-new 3.0 l Power Stroke diesel’s low-end power and torque curve, a standard 10 speed automatic transmission maximizes shift points and gear ratios to optimize power, and efficiency. Auto Start-Stop also comes standard.

The all-new 3.0 l Power Stroke diesel engine is available for both 4x2 and 4x4 F-150 pickups. It will be available on SuperCrew trucks with either a 167 cm or 198 cm bed configuration, and SuperCab trucks with a 198 cm bed.
